WHAT ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF ICE PACKS AND STYROFOAM WINE SHIPPING BOXES?
We’re thrilled to offer a sustainable alternative to expandable polystyrene (EPS) foam packaging that offers superior temperature control for your wine.
Expandable polystyrene foam has been used for decades to protect wine from heat exposure during shipping but is difficult to recycle and has a negative environmental impact.
This 97% renewable corrugated-board alternative to foam is engineered to keep wine safe for 72 hours, exceeding the performance of EPS foam while greatly reducing the environmental impact and consumer inconvenience of foam packaging disposal.
Compared to EPS Foam, per 1,000 packages
74% reduction in net greenhouse gas emissions - equal to 5.28 thousand miles of car travel.
82% reduction in water consumption - the equivalent of 2.18 thousand buckets of water.
63% reduction in cumulative energy demand - enough to power 256.59 houses for a day.
51% reduction in fossil fuel emissions - equal to 2.76 thousand miles of car travel.
69% reduction in solid waste - enough to fill 12.72 household wheeled garbage bins.
CAN ICE PACKS ALWAYS BE INSERTED WITH MY ORDERS?
